Green Bay Packers Coach Guides Team to 10 Wins in 1989
Jan. 16, 1990 – Fresh off a thrill-packed 10-6 season, Packers coach Lindy Infante is rewarded with a two-year contract extension. The additional years are added to the three years that remain from the original contract he signed upon becoming head coach on Feb. 3, 1988. “For the good of the organization, we needed to keep him,” says Packers President Bob Harlan. “He is someone who is going to be sought after by others.” With his team winning an NFL-record four games by one point, Infante guided Green Bay to 10 wins in 1989 for the first time since 1972.
